Four surviving American women told how they lived a terrible year after the terrorist attack in Las Vegas

Amber, Martha, Annette and Maria, although they have lived all their lives in the small town of Rancho Cucamonga in Southern California, did not know each other until the trouble brought them together. We met the “sisters in misfortune” in the psychologist's office. The women were all at the Route 91 Country Music Festival on October 2017, 32, when Stephen Paddock fired at concert attendees from the 59nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel. 546 people were killed, another XNUMX were injured.

Amber shows the tattoo she got on her leg: “Run, don't turn around, just keep running,” writes Voice of America... She repeated these words, perhaps a hundred times, covering her daughter with her body as they fled in panic from the shots. On this leg, she injured the Achilles tendon, but the pain from the injury did not feel until months later - it took so long for the stress to release her.

The first two months I hardly left the house, - says Amber Burgun. - I just took my son to school. I felt that home is the only place where I can be safe. Nobody will come and shoot me here. I don't have to constantly turn around or look for emergency exits.

For a long time she couldn’t force herself to go to the mall, she was frightened that there was only one emergency exit. Neither her friends nor her family understood her fears and panic attacks. The husband, with whom they lived 10 for years, left her just before Christmas.

Martha was at the concert with her husband. These photos were taken five minutes before the shots.

At that moment they were right in front of the stage, in the most vulnerable part of the concert area for bullets. They survived thanks to Martha's husband, a lifeguard by profession.

He told me: “We will not run with the crowd. If they shoot at a crowd, we don't want to be in it. I know he was right. But then these decisions that you make in the moment of danger, in order to survive at any cost, to return home to your children, admitting the thought that they are better than you ... these decisions haunt you. "

The women met each other at a psychologist's appointment, where they turned when they could not cope with post-traumatic syndrome on their own. And now, if friends and family cannot understand their “new normalcy,” they say, you can always call your sisters in misfortune.

“Girls are my family, they understand me and don't judge me for my fears,” says Amber.

“We are all traumatized, and perhaps one day we will get better, but it's a long process…”.
